Rick Wakeman's BACK AGAIN tour (2001)

The end of an era.....

Rick Wakeman will be embarking on his final tour of the UK from March 10th until April 8th and this will herald the end of an era that has seen him perform over 500 shows in the UK over the last ten years alone.

His last one man show was heralded by many as being the epitome of a what a one man show should encompass, with an unexpected mixed selection of music wrapped around the hilarious anecdotes that have also become his trademark in recent years following his numerous appearances in programmes such as Countdown and never Mind The Buzzcocks.

This final tour will see him perform with the renowned operatic tenor, Ramon Remedios, although this show will be far from operatic, (as Ramon well knows to his cost), as he becomes the endless butt of Rick's pretty much continual bombardment of sarcastic humour throughout the entire performance ! He does get ample opportunity to show off has talent though, and the former star of the West End production of Phantom of The Opera rises to the occasion with some classic arrangements of some of Rick's compositions as well as those by other well known contemporary composers. There will also be the last chance to hear the now legendary "Barber of Wigan", a two man operetta that has been a guaranteed show stopper wherever it has been performed !

The usual batch of silly stories alongside the music will also be in abundance, and with no support act, the full two and a half hours, (with a short interval), should guarantee to be a show not to be missed.

As mentioned earlier, this is Rick's farewell tour of the theatres of the UK and so don't come crying to us if you miss it !
